Day 43: Saturday, October 27 – Louisville, KY to NJ

  • Our final day on the road. Forty-three fantastic days. Every single day was amazing. Truly!!!
  • We left Louisville and hit the road early, hoping to outrun Hurricane Sandy and make it home with one long day in the car. We stopped in Clarksburg, WV for lunch at a restaurant serving up hot dogs since 1933.

  • On the road, we passed convoys of tree-trimming trucks heading north in anticipation of work from the hurricane. About 30 from Virginia, 10 from Texas and 3 from Florida.

  • We finally returned to the land of full-service gas and happily filled up.

Yay! Full-service gas in NJ!

  • Finally, home sweet home.
